I joined Lawrence Stephens Solicitors in September 2019 from a West End firm where I was a Partner specialising in residential property and private client.
I qualified in 1997 and won the Law Society prize for outstanding performance in my final year at Law School in London, where I graduated with a Distinction.
Since then, I established a loyal and expanding client base, of both UK based and offshore clients. I have extensive years of experience in all aspects of residential property, including lease extensions and the buying and selling of all types of property and advise on the full cycle of a property transaction to ensure clients receive an outstanding service.
My experience also expands to private clients including advising both UK and non-UK domiciled clients on succession and tax strategies, to include drafting Wills, the administration of estates, tax issues and trusts.
I am married with two children and retain a keen interest in the beloved Arsenal FC, Southend United FC and Essex Cricket Club. Having played football at semi-professional level (many years ago) I still play twice a week and captain my local cricket club in the summer months.
"I have used Lawrence Stephens both for the purchase of my first flat a couple of years ago and subsequently for the sale and onward purchase of a new house."
"Glen Bayliss and his team have supported us on both occasions and frankly, we'll never use anyone else. We received the contact of Lawrence Stephens via a friend a couple of years ago. Whilst as a first-time buyer I was looking at every penny, I'm very glad I went with Glen. Whilst there are marginally cheaper service providers, I have seen how horrendous those other low-cost practices can be based on friends' experience."
"Glen has always very helpful throughout the process, especially as a first time buyer, providing all the guidance and answers to any queries I had."
"Based on the good support provided in my first purchase, we decided on using Glen's services for the subsequent sale and onwards purchase."
"Unfortunately we had a very challenging onward purchase where eventually it was found that there was ongoing subsidence, leading to the purchase falling through. Throughout the hellish and uncertain experience Glen was the only service provider that always had our back, provided good perspectives and made sure we approached things cautiously. When we have found the willpower to look for a new house again, we'll be sure to reach out to Glen and co for his services."
